A web accelerator is a software that speeds up a website, usually by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the server, as a consequence increasing the performance of an Internet site considerably. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a server and not only will an Internet site operate better, but the server load will also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to increase the speed of any sort of website. In comparison, most web hosting businesses do not offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in case you want to use such software.

Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting

If you acquire one of our shared website hosting packages, you shall have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could tremendously increase the speed of any Internet site since it caches the pages that a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will increase substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven sites. Since the Internet site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall web server load will be decreased significantly. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps including chats and booking sites since it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the plan you choose, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.

Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia CP that is included with our semi-dedicated server plans will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is among the most well known accelerators since it can accelerate any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, consequently the server shall not have to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is perfect for Internet sites developed with applications such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that same guest opens them again. Varnish can speed up a site several times because it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs like chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller parts the moment a user enters anything, so it functions much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit big parts of data which require time to be processed. You'll be able to select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators through your Control Panel.

Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers

In case you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for accelerating your sites. Memcached can reduce the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic Internet sites designed with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire webpages the first time a new website visitor opens them. It can be used to accelerate any sort of website as it delivers the cached content faster than the hosting server any time a customer opens the same webpage again. You'll be able to employ Node.js for online applications that demand real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking websites. Unlike other platforms which wait for the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the data little by little as the user fills each and every box, so it works much faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
